CORPORATE WORKSTATION ASSESSMENT
For Homeworkers or Office Workers
Homeworkers or Office Workers using poorly set up Display Screen Equipment (DSE) are most likely to experience discomfort gradually, over a period of time. If no changes are made to their working environment, then this discomfort will turn into pain and could lead to an acute long term condition.
With no knowledge of how long these temporary home working arrangements will be in place, the risks to the Homeworker are likely to increase unless a strategy for workstation assessments and employee guidance are put into place.
If an employee is experiencing discomfort at their workstation, or having difficulties setting up an appropriate working environment, then undertaking a workstation assessment will identify the risks and provide practical, reasoned solutions and recommendations.
This will reduce the risk to the lowest possible level in so far as is reasonably practicable for the Employer and Employee; and demonstrate due diligence of care in accordance with the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974.
What do we offer?
Assessments can be led remotely or provided physically in your Company's premises.
Remote Workstation Assessments are conducted by video consultation with your employee. This can be done using their desktop computer or laptop with a webcam, a tablet / iPad, or via their smartphone.
Our workstation assessors are also Chartered Physiotherapists with many years’ experience.
Their detailed understanding of biomechanics and how the body works, will help the employee better manage their musculoskeletal health.
Our assessors will problem solve with your employee to find ways in which they can best utilise their available equipment, their environment and their work routine to minimise risk.
Provide practical exercises, stretches, and postural correction.
Ensuring that all achievable ‘soft’ solutions are met.
Provide practical and cost effective longer term solutions, which can be implemented if required.
A report will be provided at the end of the assessment stating the defaults of the workstation and the solutions recommended.
